Welcome to dickblick
The paint you've previously known as Liquitex Medium Viscosity Acrylic Artist Color is now called Liquitex Professional Soft Body Acrylics.
Liquitex Professional Soft Body Acrylics were the first fine artist's acrylics sold commercially in the United States. These concentrated acrylics contain rich, pure pigments that produce intense color without opacifiers or fillers. They have twice the covering power of ordinary craft acrylics!
Liquitex Soft Body Acrylics are naturally creamy and fluid. That makes them just right for tole and decorative arts, stenciling, murals, silk-screening, calligraphy, printmaking, graphic design, sculpture, photo retouching, hard edged painting, watercolor techniques, fabric painting without heat setting, airbrush illustration... you name it! They're great for all surfaces, including wood, fabric, ceramics, canvas, or any porous surface.
New for 2016 is a special release Muted Collection, which includes five colors — Muted Green, Muted Grey, Muted Pink, Muted Turquoise, and Muted Violet. Individually, each color has a muted, subtle character. Together, the colors create a tonal palette. The Muted Collection is intermixable with other Liquitex mediums for maximum versatility.
Classic 8 Jar Set
Contains 8 colors in 2 oz (59 ml) jars, including Dioxazine Purple, Ivory Black, Naphthol Crimson, Emerald Green, Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue, Titanium White, Phthalo Blue (Green Shade), and Cadmium Orange Hue.
Color Set of 6

I love these paints, just the right amount of fluidity!
By Holly the Artist
I paint highly detailed paintings, the fluid quality and density of the pigment allows to a lot of flexibility. I can achieve a very smooth surface with layers of under painting, by spraying the paint with water before use, or adding an additional media, such as gloss varnish.

Not only covered well, but brought the painting to life with brilliant colors that stand out.
I plan to buy again as needed.

I prefer paint in jars with wide openings--less waste.
Superb Paints for the Professional Miniaturist
By S Cole
I've been using Liquitex Soft Body acrylics for over 14 years, to paint my miniature wood carvings. I wanted the qualities of professional acrylics but traditional acrylics are too thick, and other fluid acrylics are craft quality. Liquitex Soft Body Acrylics have the proper color load and mixability of professional acrylics, but are fluid enough for me to paint features on faces that are only 1/4 inch high. All with non-toxicity and soap-and-water cleanup. I use the whole range of mediums, pallete spray, varnish, etc. and recommend them to all of my students, art friends and customers. I always buy from Blick. These paints are a fantastic deal from Blick, and a solid value but have much higher retail prices if you buy them in an art store. Paints last a long time but I especially recommend buying mediums and varnishes from Blick for freshness.
Good product! I would buy this again.
from New York, NY
I use this for painting designs on furnitures.
I will buy this product again.
I use this product to create images out of woodblock prints. The brightness of the colors I bought really enhanced the results I got.

I like the smoothness of the Liqitex Acrylic paint and find it covers well. Regular tube paints don't offer the smoothness. I have NOT tried the soft body in the tube because I find the jars so perfect to work with. This is not a paint for knifes and texture. If I want that I use Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste and add the paint to it and paint over it. Texture only comes out when the spirit moves me.

I love these paints. They provide a slight metallic finish that does not overpower a painting. You need to use an airbrush with a larger needle...it will clog very fine airbrushes. My only complaint....I wish they made many more colors.
Liquitex acrylic colors come in three distinct viscosities; Soft Body, Heavy Body, and Ink. Each contain high levels of pigment for intense color and great coverage. Whatever your creative endeavor or application, there is a Liquitex Acrylic paint that will meet your needs.
